Our Current Mass & Services

“Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him
Matthew 4:10

We are delighted to announce that the Cathedral will be re-opening for public worship from the weekend of 4th/5th July.

However, it is clear that we need to proceed carefully along the path that lies ahead, and that we cannot simply return to how things were before lockdown. As a result, we will be carefully managing numbers attending Mass, so as to keep people safe.  Consequently, you will need to book your place in order to attend a public Mass at St Marie’s over the weekend. You can find instructions on how to book your weekend place at a St Marie’s Mass here

We would like to reassure people that there is still no Sunday obligation to attend Mass, and our live-stream Masses will be continuing for the foreseeable future.

Weekday Mass at St Marie’s (from the 6th July) – no need to book:

Monday to Friday: 12.30pm, 5.30pm

Saturday: 12.30pm

Weekend Mass at St Marie’s (from the 4th July) – please book before you come:

You will need to book a place to attend the following Mass times:

Saturday: 5.30pm

Sunday: 8am, 9.30am, 12.30pm, 6.30pm

Please only attend Mass if you know that you are feeling completely well. If you are showing any symptoms, even if they are mild, please protect other people by staying at home.  You are also encouraged to think about wearing a mask when you attend Mass, to help protect other people. There will be 2m distancing in place, however, so the wearing of a mask is optional.

If you would like to experience attending the live-stream Mass at 11am, please apply to the PPC by emailing them on PPC@stmariecathedral.org, letting us know how many from your household would like to participate. We will get back to you with the date of a Mass you are welcome to come along to.

Live-Stream Mass Times at St Marie’s:

Monday – Saturday: 8am

Sunday: 11am

A Slovak Mass is also live-streamed at 3pm every Sunday.

If you are unable to attend Mass in person, we warmly invite you to spiritually join in with these live-stream celebrations at home, whenever you can. Previously recorded Masses will also continue to be made available.

Opening Hours for Private Prayer:

The Cathedral is also open 7 days a week for private prayer. Our current hours of opening are:

Monday – Saturday: 12pm-3pm

Sunday: 4.30pm – 6pm

After the 5th July, these hours will change to:

Monday – Saturday: 11.30am (for confessions) – 6pm

Sunday: 4.30pm – 6pm

These may be subject to change, so please keep an eye on the website and the bulletin for further updates.
